Since I made the ‘Guntzburg’ connection to real Jewish history, more and more pieces of the puzzle are falling into place.

I had a couple of comments on the bottom of this blog post: Meet the Gunzburgs, that got me pondering more about the British Royal Families ‘Jewish roots’.

By ‘Jewish’, I of course mean ‘Frankist-Freemason’.

Everyone knows that the Royal Family circumcises their sons, for no obvious reason. And that the Queen Mother’s family are pretty ‘low down’ the pecking order, socially, not even appearing in the Peerage until a generation before the Queen Mother hit the jackpot.

And then, there’s the strange CO-IN-CID-ENCE that dafka saw this branch of the family become the ruling monarchs, when Edward VIII abdicated, apparently over the Wallis Simpson affair.

====

And then this morning, one of my friends sent me THIS, over email, pondering ‘what is this all about?’

I can’t answer that question directly, but here’s some more information that may help to fill in the bigger picture, of the links between some people in Israel, and some people in high places.

====

Let’s begin with a couple of the comments that got me thinking:

Ruth:

When I looked at the site in Russian of the “conspiracy theorist”, one of his theories is that Kate Middleton is Jewish from her mother’s Goldshmit side. When I try and check it, it seems to be split. Do you know more about this?

Daisy:

I had heard about that: and also that Princess Diana had some Jewish connections as well ( I can’t remember exactly how and from which side). If I recall ( I don’t have sources unfortunately), Kate also has Jewish lineage from her father’s side. And as you know the royal family has a Mohel, so if what I am saying is correct, and both mothers of the couple are Jewish, then what are the kids? Circumcise Jewish boys and their sisters?

====

So, that got me thinking, and this is what I replied:

If you go here:

https://www.geni.com/people/Charlotte-Sarah-Jane-Grimstead/6000000003934263554

You’ll see that the Queen Mother is a direct descendent of the Frankist Solomon Schorr (who I think is the husband of the Frankist ‘prophetess’ Chaya Schorr that Jacob Emden writes about), son of Elisha Shorr of Rohatyn.

That would make the Queen Mother and the Queen ‘Frankist Jewish’ descendants…

Here’s what it says underneath the geni profile:

Yehuda (Jan Fredyk) Wolowski (Shorr) of Rohatyn/ Rogatin took the name John Frederick Walsh in Ireland.

He was associated with the Walsh family of Barbados and their shipping business which may have been the reason the family chose Walsh as their Irish name. He and his wife were Frankists. He was in the Czestochowa prison with Jacob Frank in 1760. He was a son of Shlomo (Franciszek) Shorr (Wolowski).He was an ancestor of the late Queen Mother through two of his daughters. An attempt has been made to obscure this Walsh (Wolowski/ Shorr) ancestry.

====

Today, I decided to tootle around a bit more, and take a closer look at the Royal Family’s family tree – which we noted a while back, was also being curated by none other than Keith Lawrence Hanit.

(Who I’ve seen pop up in all the most interesting places in Jewish history, including the Vilna Gaon’s profile, to give just one example.)

 

====

So, I started tootling around, and quickly I got to THIS:

Well, fancy that!

I’ve been trying to track down Alexander Sender Shor, in real Jewish history, for almost two years.

Here’s what that geni discussion said, from 2016:

According to the “We’re Related” app recently offered by ancestry.com, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge is my ninth cousin, through his grandmother QEII. As I am Jewish I was rather surprised and skeptical, and thought perhaps ancestry had made a significant error in tracing their family tree.

The app indicates that Prince William and I are descendants of Alexander Sender Shor 1660-1737.

The profile for Mary (Miriam) Elizabeth Walsh (Wolowski) (Connor (Kinnor)) Mary Elizabeth Walsh, has no father listed. Interestingly it was added by Prince Harry of Wales on June 17, 2009. If you look at the revisions you will see that “Customer Service” made many deletions of relatives of this person just this past week.

Her husband Frederick Walsh also has no father listed. According to the “About” section his original name was Yehuda (Jan Fredyk) Wolowski (Shorr). The revisions also show that “Customer Service” made many deletions of his relatives this past week.

==

The deleted profiles include:

Captain John Walsh was deleted by Customer Service. Tue at 4:15 PM
Daniel Walsh (Wolowski) was deleted by Customer Service. Tue at 2:46 PM
Mary (Maria/ Miriam) Carpenter (Walsh (Wolowski)) was deleted by Customer Service. Tue at 2:46 PM
Michael (Michal) Walsh (Wolowski) was deleted by Customer Service. Tue at 2:46 PM
James Walsh (Wolowski) was deleted by Customer Service. Tue at 2:46 PM
Andrew Walsh (Wolowski) was deleted by Customer Service. Tue at 2:46 PM
Tue at 2:46 PM · view

Can anyone explain why this family line has been edited to break the chain of descent?

And is the British royal family in fact descended from a Jewish family from 17th century Lviv?

====

Of course, the geni gatekeepers were immediately all over Rhea Tannenbaum, the woman who asked the question, to tell her this:

Athol Bloomer is a descendent of Frankists, who also deliberately mixes up a lot of his information (especially to keep people away from the links with Chabad genealogy) – but over the last two years, I’ve independently corroborated a lot of the information that he’s published from separate sources that are nothing to do with him.

So, I decided to take a closer look.

====

Another Jewish lady also piped up, to say that Mary Elizabeth Walsh (Wolowski) was also popping up in her tree, connected to the Queen’s sister, Princess Margaret:

====

I went to look up who ‘Adele Astaire’ (Austerlitz) was, and I learn that she’s the sister of the entertainer Fred Astaire, and daughter of a Frankist father, who married Lord Charles Arthur Francis Cavendish.

Here’s a snippet from her Wikipedia page:

Adele Marie Austerlitz was born on September 10, 1896, in Omaha, Nebraska. Her parents were Johanna “Ann” Geilus, an American-born Lutheran of German descent, and Frederic “Fritz” Austerlitz, an Austrian-born Roman Catholic of Jewish descent. Adele’s younger brother, Fred Austerlitz, was born three years after her.

‘Roman Catholic of Jewish descent’ is a very good clue you are dealing with a Frankist.

And if you look at the family tree for Fritz Austerlitz, you’ll see he is deep, deep within known ‘Frankist family’ territory, including the Porges, Neustadtls and Schefteles (amongst others).

====

So, there is definitely at least one Frankist connection to the royal family there.

But here’s the thing: Charles Cavendish is no-where near the queen’s bit of the family tree, and doesn’t explain anything about how Mary Walsh Wolowski (Shor…) really does appear in Princess Margaret’s family tree.

Before we move on, it’s interesting to note that Adele Astaire’s second marriage was to one Kingman Douglass, who “briefly served as Assistant Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).”

It’s all connected.

Anyway, so let’s get back to Mary Walsh Wolowski (Shor), to see if we can figure out more of where the truth really lies here.

====

As always, with Frankist family trees, there’s a lot of confusion and deliberate misinformation going around.

For example, in THIS family tree we see that Mary Walsh (Wolowski) is Lord Glamis’s maternal grandma. In this version, Lord Glamis is the great-grandpa of the Queen Mother.

====

But in THIS version, we see that Mary Wolowski (Schor) is actually the mother of Lady Glamis, instead.

====

If you try and trace back what’s going on from the Queen Mother’s own family tree on geni, things get even more interesting:

Claude Bowes Lyon was the Queen Mother’s dad.

Mary Elizabeth Carpenter (Walsh) – is the Wolowski / Shor connection

And above them, there is another big, red flag that we are deep in Frankist territory – ‘Mary Ann Moran is meant to be Mary Elizabeth Walsh (Wolowski)’s mother’.

‘Moran’ is a known surname for some of the children of Jacob Frank, himself.

It’s short for ‘Moranu’ – our teacher.

====

But how do we know if these are genuine connections, and not just elements of Athol Bloomer’s fertile imagination?

Well, if you take the second family tree for Mary Walsh, and zoom out, this is what you discover:

====

The Queen Mother’s ancestress is in the same family tree as one ‘Mary Judith Montefiore’.

When I double-check HERE, with the family tree of Sir Moses Montefiore – Rothschild brother-in-law and proud freemason of the Premier Lodge in the UK, who was ALL OVER what became the modern State of Israel – I find her there, too:

====

The plot thickens.

I wrote a lot about some of those Jewish members of the Premier Lodge on the old blog who were contemporaries of Moses Montefiore. I didn’t get around to covering all of them, but here’s a little of what’s relevant, for today’s post:

Sampson Eardley, the 1st Baron Eardley.

‘Baron Eardley’s’ dad is a man called Sampson Gideon.

According to Wikipedia, Sampson Gideon bankrolls George I’s brutal suppression of the ‘Jacobite Rising of 1745’.

Sampson Gideon basically gave George I (aka ‘Gog’) the money he needed to stamp out the last of the ‘Jacobite’ uprisings in the UK, that were trying to put a Stuart back on the English throne. Gideon’s grand-dad was one Rowland Gideon, aka Rohiel Abudiente, whose own father was Moses Abudiente, a Portuguese crypto Jew who moved from Lisbon to Gluckstadt, near Hamburg / Holstein.

The Abudientes made their massive fortune primarily from slave-operated sugar plantations in Barbados, Antigua and Nevos.

They move their operations around, to avoid paying tax. And they also branched out into many other areas of international trade and commerce.

====

Rowland Gideon was married to one Esther de Porto, the daughter of Domingo (Avraham) de Porto, who was a diamond buyer working out of Madras – the stamping ground of another (secret crypto Jew), Eliyahu Yale.

The de Porto family were also intertwined with the Mocatta family – the direct ancestors of the Frankist / Sabbatean point man, Sir Moses Montefiore.

This comes from the Jewish Virtual Library:

MOCATTA, English family of Marrano origin. MOSES MOCATTA (d. 1693), who came from Amsterdam, appears in a Bevis Marks (London) synagogue list in 1671. He was a diamond broker and merchant. His granddaughter REBECCA married as her second husband Moses Lumbrozo de Mattos.

Their son ABRAHAM (d. 1751), (who added the name Mocatta and later dropped Lumbrozo de Mattos) joined with Asher Goldsmid to found Mocatta and *Goldsmid, later bullion brokers to the Bank of England, engaging in enormous transactions.  Abraham Mocatta had 11 children (including Rachel, mother of Sir Moses *Montefiore).

====

Guess what?

If you go HERE, you’ll see how the Sephardic ‘de Porto’ family morphed into the Gunzburg family, when they moved across to East Europe, via Ulmo in what is now the Netherlands, and went full-on Ashkenazi.

It’s amazing how all roads lead back to the same people.

If you go here: The Gunzburg family , you’ll find another detailed post about this family on Encyclopedia.com, which helps to fill in more of the details.

====

This comes from the Israeli Freemasons own site:

Montefiore was born in Livorno, Italy. He was an active Mason, having been initiated in Moira Lodge in 1812. His brother-in-law, Nathan Meyer Rothschild, had been initiated ten years earlier in the Emulation Lodge. Montefiore and Rothschild had married sisters, daughters of Levi Barent Cohen.

He was knighted in 1837 by Queen Victoria. That same year, Benjamin Disraeli was elected to Parliament as a Tory.

====

So, Moses Montefiore is how I first ‘fell into’ this whole Frankist-Freemason saga.

The whole can of worms started to open when I realised that one of Jacob Frank’s daughters, Sarah Judith Jacob, married someone called ‘Francis Rogers Kissane’ – who comes from a Jewish-catholic family of Spanish and Portuguese descent.

Here’s a screenshot from rootsweb.com from 2 years ago – I can’t seem to find it now, it could be they have scrubbed this information off, already:

====

If you trace Francis Rogers Kissane’s genealogy back, you get to a man called Ephraim Kassin, who was born in 1590 in Aleppo, Syria. Kassin was the ancestor of Nicolas Rodriguez Galvan, a Jewish catholic, who had at least two daughters.

One of those daughters, Maria Rodriguez, became the mother of Frances Rogers Kissane in Ireland, who became the husband of Jacob Frank’s daughter, Sarah.

And the other one, Juana Rodriguez, married Jacob Montefiore, the paternal uncle of Moses Montefiore:

====

Most of the genealogy links showing these connections have been carefully scrubbed from the internet, but even the titles of the pages that are now no longer ‘found’, are revealing;

https://www.ancestry.ca/genealogy/records/juana-judith-chana-galvan-montefiore-rodriguez-24-21k0phl

Juana’s surname was then magically changed from Rodriguez Galvan to the more English ‘Levi Barrow’.

====

Let me sum up what I just told you, then we’re going to bring it back around, to the ‘Mary Walsh’ we have in the Queen Mother’s family tree:

> Sir Moses Montefiore’s paternal uncle married Juana Rodriguez.

>Her sister Maria was the mother of Frances Roger Kissane (another crypto Jewish Catholic) in Ireland.

>Frances Roger Kissane married SarahJacob Frank’s daughter.

>And then Juana’s son Moses Augustus Montefiore – first cousin of Sir Moses Montefiore – married Mary Kissane, the daughter of one ‘Captain John Walsh’, who was the son of Yehuda Wolowski Schorr, the son of Elisha Schor.

>Captain John Walsh’s sister was a woman named Charlotte Sarah Jane Grimstead. She was the mother of Charlotte Lyon-Bowes, whose son, Claude Bowes-Lyon is the paternal grandfather of the present Queen of Britain, Elizabeth II.

====

Or to put it another way, the Lubavitcher Rebbe and the Queen seem to both be related to the infamous ‘Shor’ family.

There’s still a lot more to figure out here, and there is a lot of disinformation still, to try and birur.

But let me leave you with this, from HERE:

====

It shows that Jacob Frank’s son, ‘Rabbi Yekutiel Yehuda Zalman Leib Reizel’ (Jacobi) married Chava Rivlin, the daughter of one Benjamin Rivlin.

Their son, James Moran, apparently became the leader of a large group of Frankists in Liverpool, UK, around 200 years ago – and he married one ‘Johanna Rodriguez Galvan de Leon’.

I’m willing to bet good money this is the same family that (freemason-Frankists) Moses Montefiore and his brother-in-law, Nathan Mayer Rothschild, married into, when it changed its name to “Levi Barrow-Cohen.”

====

Let’s stop there for now.

If you ask me, the chances are pretty high that the Freemason-Frankists managed to get a Shorr descendant onto the British throne.

But, I think that’s not even the real story here.

As I keep saying, the Freemason-Frankists are only the latest in a very long line of ‘xtianising-crypto Jews’ who have been controlling the Jewish community for a very long time, and they seem to have closer links with European royal families and the church, than they do with the ‘Jewish street’.

As events continue, I think that finally, more and more of us are going to start figuring that out.

How’s that for a title?

***Updates***

I’m  half-way through the memoirs of the Rebbe Rayatz, the sixth Rebbe of Lubavitch, and it’s turning up more interesting info. In a previous post that’s now scrubbed, we learned from those memoirs how the mother of the Alter Rebbe was one ‘Rivka Shor’ (amongst many other things that have subsequently been deliberately falsified and scrubbed, in Chabad official history.)

There are probably many reasons for scrubbing ‘Rivka Shor’, but the main one is that the Shor family she belonged to were notorious Sabbatians, and then notorious Frankists.

The following excerpt comes from a book I just finished called: Women and the Messianic Heresy of Shabtai Tzvi 1666-1816, and it’s talking about the period when Jacob Frank and his Frankists were taking over the Jewish community.

====

[A] number of women – daughters of elite Sabbatian families – became known during those years as independent prophetesses who wielded a great deal of influence within their sectarian milieu.

They included Rosa and Merle Schotten, daughters of Arieh Leib Schotten, the Sabbatian rabbi of the Jewish community of Mattersdorf in Western Hungary; Hayah Schor, daughter of the well-known Sabbatian preacher Elisha Schor, and sister of Solomon Schor, a well-known Sabbatian from Rohatyn... and Roesel Eger, sister of Jonas (Yonah) Wehle, head of the Sabbatian fellowship in Prague at the end of the eighteenth century and first two decades of the nineteenth.

====

We’ll come back to Roesel Eger another time.

Her obvious links to her known Sabbatian-Frankist brother Yonah Wehle have been deliberately scrubbed over on geni, but you’ll still find her in the same family tree as Sigmund Freud, plus the usual Oppenheims, Behrends, Gompertzs, Wertheimers – i.e. all those old ‘court Jew’ families that no-one really talks about, but who have been behind the scenes in Jewish history for a very long time, as tax collectors-cum-‘Chief Rabbis’ for the poor communities they headed up.

====

But to understand why you’d scrub Chaya Schor, and her whole family, out of the Chabad genealogy, you only need to read this excerpt, taken from Jacob Emden’s description in Sefer Shimush, 5b, where he brings one of the accounts of a repentant Sabbatian-Frankist, given to the Beit Din in Satanow on June 11, 1756:

[Y]ou should know that I have already been in the fellowship of Shabtai Tzvi, may his name be blotted out and his lineage uprooted, for nine years. My first act of sin took place when I expressed my wish to join them and be among them. There was a woman there, a whore and a heretic, the wife of Tzvi [Hirsch], son of Rabbi Shabses. 

She is the daughter of Elisha [Schor] of Rohatyn…..She took a knife and cut a piece of forbidden fat from the fat-burning candle and ate it, and she enjoined me to do the same. I took a piece of the fat as well and ate it. Then they took me among them and revealed their secrets to me.

====

I don’t want to get too much into details, but Chaya Schor was known for committing acts of incest with her family members, many of whom subsequently ‘converted out’ to Catholicism, under Jacob Frank.

This was a standard ‘Sabbatian-Frankist’ thing.

While her wing of the family seem to have been the most extreme, the extended Shor family were known to have been ‘secret’ (and not so secret…) Sabbatians going back generations, with the notorious Chayah Schor herself claiming that her grandparents and all her uncles were all Sabbatians.

====

If you go HERE, you’ll find the family tree for Rivka Shor, on the JewAge website, who descends from Avraham Chaim Shor. And if you go HERE, you’ll find the family tree for Chaya Shor, who descends from Ephraim Zalman Shor, author of “Tevuos Shor”, and brother of Avraham Chaim.

Ephraim’s grandson is called Alexander Sender Shor, and he also writes a book (apparently) called “Tevuos Shor”. And Alexander Sender’s son is…Elisha Shor of Rohatyn.

So, it’s a close connection.

And you can understand why someone would want to ‘scrub’ these relatives out of the family tree, even if they themselves were not Sabbatian-Frankists…

====

UPDATE:

Look who else descends from Ephraim Zalman Shor:

====

None other than Jacob (Leibowitz Benjamin) FRANK(el).

His maternal grandfather is Yakov Shor, the brother of Elisha Shor.

Which means that his mum is the first cousin of the notorious Chaya Shor, above.

You see, it’s a very small gene pool, all these people swim in, and of course, that’s another great reason for scrubbing the Shor family tree so thoroughly.

====

Off the back of this headline and THIS post (below), I got inspired to to back and read the Rebbe Rayatz’s memoirs, to try to pick up more clues about what is really going on here.

====

You can find those memoirs HERE, join me on page 169.

Most of the names and identifying details in the Rebbe Rayatz’s memoirs are made up.

Again, it’s hard to understand why you’d do that, if you are writing ‘real history’, but the more we look into what’s going on here, the less that seems to be what is really going on.

So, I get to this whole, weird account about a ‘Nachum’, who is an agent for some (made-up name) Polish Count, who is discussing selling some of his boss’s estates to a Swedish royal called ‘Prince Johann Cambari’. Let’s first quote the story, then unpick it:

====

Amongst the Jews who were driven out of Spain there was a wealthy man named Joseph Gabrieli. He had two daughters whom he married to wealthy suitors.

After their exile, they wandered from one country to another and during a plague the husband of the elder daughter died. She then went to live with her sister who had just given birth to a son and who was named Judah.

A year later Judah’s father also died and this, together with the reduced circumstances in which they now found themselves, caused the early death of the child’s mother.

Just before she died, she made her sister promise that when her son Judah would grow to manhood, she would explain his Jewish origin to him and try to induce him to return to Judaism.

The aunt who had taken the child into her care had married a Swedish nobleman who told her that secretly he too was a Jew. He took his bride and Judah to his people in Sweden. They changed Judah’s name to Johann and he was brought up as a prince of royal blood, like a true Cambari.

“Two years ago my husband died/’ concluded Prince Johann’s aunt, “and I then revealed to Johann that he was Judah, the grandson of Joseph Gabrieli, who was my father as well as his mother’s. He has seen his grandfather’s photograph and knows we are Jews.”

“Yes, we have both decided we would like to return to the faith we belong to, but you can understand our difficulties,” broke in the Prince. “We have so much to learn and we need someone like you to befriend us and show us the way back!” concluded the Prince pleadingly.

====

I read this passage, and nearly fell off my chair.

I’ve had my own theories going for quite some time now, about how ‘crypto Jews’ have been running the show in the Jewish community – and elsewhere – for many, many centuries. But to read it so boldly in the Lubavitcher Rebbe’s memoirs was something else.

So of course, I tried to track down this Swedish ‘Prince Johann’ from the 16th century, and very quickly, I got to this guy:

John III of Sweden, who was married to Catherine Jagellion.

====

Alternative historian Miles Mathis has had the Jagellions fingered as ‘crypto-Jews’ who took over a whole bunch of European royal families in a bunch of his research papers.

(Try THIS one, for a good introduction to what he says is going on, including how the de Medicis were really ‘crypto Jews’.)

Until I read this entry in the Rebbe Rayatz’s memoirs, I was kinda sceptical of Mathis’ claims.

Now, let’s just say I’m a lot less sceptical…. And I’m still wondering what the heck is going on here, and how Chabad seems to consistently be in the middle of all this stuff, going back for centuries and centuries.

====

If you look closely on the Shor extended family tree, you’ll find close links to people I wrote about previously, like Stefan Powditsky.

Here’s a snippet about him:

Stefan Powditsky, as he became, is a royal tax collector who became a xtian. His brother is Ephraim Fishel, and Ephraim Fishel’s grandson is the Shaar Ephraim – who we are told in ‘made up history’ is the grandfather of the Chacham Tzvi. Really, the Chacham Tzvi’s father is one Yacov Kopple Halevi Wallerstein.

====

If you go HERE, you’ll find a lot more information about the Fiszel family, and their close connections to the Polish Jagellion kings.

Here’s a few snippets:

The most influential family in Kraków’s Jewish community from the 1470s to the mid-sixteenth century. Members of the Fiszel family served as creditors to King Casimir the Jagiellonian and his sons Jan Olbracht, Aleksander, and Sigismund I.

Efrayim Fiszel and his three sons, Ya‘akov, Mosheh, and Yosef, first appear in sources from Kraków in the 1460s…Raḥel, Mosheh’s wife, who had come to Kraków from Prague, began independent financial activities prior to her husband’s death, which occurred before 1489. She was creditor of the Polish kings Casimir IV the Jagiellonian, Jan Olbracht, and Aleksander.

==

Raḥel managed a mortgage bank.

In 1495, when 30 Jews, including Raḥel’s son-in-law Ya‘akov Pollak and her brother-in-law, were arrested in Kraków, her name appeared on the list of persons obliged to guarantee that those released from prison would not leave the city. Mosheh and Raḥel Fiszel had six children—three daughters, Ester, Hendel, and Sara; and three sons, Efrayim (Franczek), Stefan (originally Mosheh), and Yitsḥak. 

Mosheh (Stefan) Fiszel served as a creditor to kings Jan Olbracht and Aleksander even before his conversion to Christianity…. After converting to Catholicism (between 1503 and 1504); Stefan was ennobled by Zygmunt the Old, receiving the Korab coat of arms. His sons Jan and Stanisław also converted to Catholicism; their godmother was Elizabeth, the widow of King Casimir the Jagiellonian. Stefan divorced his wife, who chose to remain Jewish. In 1510, with the king’s permission, he purchased the village of Powidz, from which he took his new surname, Powidzki.

Efrayim (Franczek) Fiszel, Stefan’s brother, was appointed in 1512 to the position of general collector of Jewish taxes in Little Poland…. After two years, however, he was forced to resign this position, though he continued to enjoy royal protection and remained in service to Queen Bona

Mosheh Fiszel (1480–1541), Franczek’s son, was a physician; he married Ester, who served in the court of Queen Bona. In 1532, after the death of the kabbalist and rabbi Asher Lemel, he became rabbi of the so-called “Polish” Jewish community of Kazimierz.

In 1541 he was appointed, together with the rabbi of Lublin, Shalom Shakhnah, to be the chief rabbi of Little Poland and Rus’, a post that included the right to excommunicate and judge Jews for religious transgressions. Soon after his appointment, he was accused of converting Christians to Judaism. He was tortured and died soon after his release from prison.

====

I’m quoting from that piece extensively, because you’ll notice that we’ve spoken about many of these people before, including the Karaite rabbi of Lublin, Shalom Shaknah, and ‘Ephraim Fiszel’, who is meant to be the great, great grandfather of the Chacham Tzvi, via the Sha’ar Ephraim.

If you go HERE, you’ll find the hodge-podge mess that is meant to be the family tree of the Sha’ar Ephraim on geni.

====

The ‘Sha’ar Ephraim’ is meant to descend from Rabbi Eliyahu the Baal Shem of Chelm, via Valentina, the daughter of the Maharshal.

Snippet from Wikipedia:

Elijah was born to his father Aaron Judah in 1550. About 1565 he entered the yeshiva of Rabbi Solomon Luria of Lublin, and, after receiving his rabbinical ordination, became rabbi of Chełm, a position he would hold for the rest of his life. In 1564, he gathered with other prominent rabbis, including his teacher, to co-sign the halachic rulings which allowed an agunah to remarry.

His great-granddaughter married Rabbi Ephraim ha-Kohen (1616–1678), author of “Sha’ar Efrayim” and grandfather of Rabbi Tzvi Ashkenazi.

====

Jewish history is so full of ‘Ephraim Fishels’ – always showing up in very influential positions within the Jewish community – that’s it’s very hard to pin all the facts down. But, as the convention in these families is to name a son after a father, we know they are all connected to the same family tree.

====

‘Elijah Baal Shem’ has another name.

His other name is ‘Elijah Loanz’, or Elijah ben Moses Ashkenazi Loans of Worms.

Snippet from Wikipedia:

[O]n his mother’s side was the grandson of Johanan Luria, and on his father’s of Josel of Rosheim. After having studied in his native city under the direction of Jacob Ginzburg and Akiba Frankfort, Loans went to Cracow, where he attended the lectures of Rabbi Menahem Mendel Avigdors. He also studied in the Yeshivah of the Maharal. While there he prepared for publication the “Darke Mosheh” of Moses Isserles….

It is said he lived 108 years. He initiated a group of hidden righteous individuals preparing the ways of the Baal Shem Tov through his student Rabbi Yoel Baal Shem Tov.

====

Elsewhere, the Rebbe Rayatz talks about that Yoel Baal Shem, too, and those ‘groups of mystics’ that sound oh so much like the pockets of secret Sabbatians that were operating all over Eastern Europe.

Snippet from Wikipedia:

Yoel Baal Shem was an Orthodox Jewish scholar of Halacha and Kabbalah who lived in Zamość during the 17th century. He became renowned as a Baal Shem for performing miracles, commanding demons and authoring Kabalistic amulets.

Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn (1880–1950) writes in his memoirs that Yoel’s father was Yisrael Yosef, a disciple of Rabbi Mordecai Yoffe….

Rabbi Yoel Baal Shem (I) was initiated by his teacher Rabbi Elijah Baal Shem into a group of nistarim known as Machane Yisrael. He was the teacher of Rabbi Adam Baal Shem of Ropczyce who instructed Rabbi Israel Baal Shem Tov in Kabbalah.

====

The Baal Shem TOV came to ‘sweeten’ the demonically-possessed ‘Baal Shems’ that were characteristic of the Sabbatian movement.

That’s why he’s called the Baal Shem TOV – the good ‘Baal Shem’.

====

I know this is a lot to take in, so let’s try to sum up.

  1. Crypto-Jews – or as I prefer to think of them now, people with Jewish blood who actually don’t practise Judaism, and who have a habit of flitting in and out of the Jewish community as it suits them – appear to have been in positions of influence, both in other religions, and in many royal families for many, many centuries.
  2. Typically, when they move back into the Jewish community, at least externally, they become ‘court Jews’ and tax collectors, i.e. the people who act as ‘go-betweens’ between the authentic Jewish community and the rulers.
  3. They also seem to play a prominent part in minting coins and overseeing banking and commerce.
  4. They usually have a ‘dual identity’ going on throughout history, so it’s very difficult to track them down.
  5. They are connected to the ‘Conversos’ – i.e. the xtianised Jews of Spain and Portugal, but increasingly, I think this group of people predate the exile from Spain, too.
  6. They were at the forefront of the Sabbatian movement (but also predate it); and the same families were also at the forefront of the Frankist-Freemason movement, too.
  7. All this is definitely connected to who is really running the State of Israel, today.
  8. Chabad is always coming up in the middle of this story, in some very unexpected ways.

====

Let’s stop there for now.

There is so much more I could say about all this, but it’ll have to wait for another time.

So much of what we think we know about Jewish history is actually just made-up stories and Bubbemeises, designed to cover up the fact that the same small group of ‘interesting’ people have been running the show – and running the Jewish people into the ground – for centuries and centuries.

Let me leave you with this, that my friend C. sent in an email entitled: The Lubavitcher Rebbe and Shabak:

The following stood out to me from this 2nd article:
“In our conversation it was apparent that he had a tremendous knowledge in the area of intelligence and intelligence-gathering. And his connections were vast. He had connections with the White House and the State Department. He had connections in other places in the world with the powers that be.”
====

Does it sound normal to you, that a Rebbe should have such far-reaching connections with spooks and politicians?

Really?

UPDATE:

Jacob Frank was also a descendent of the famous ‘Shaul Wahl Katznellenbogen’, AKA ‘King of Poland for a day’.

Read HERE for more details about him, and his direct connection to Polish royalty, snippet below:

[W]hen the previous Polish monarch died, the noble electors were unable to decide on a successor within the time allotted by law. They therefore decided to crown Sha’ul until they could reach an agreement….

The legend also explains Sha’ul’s rise to greatness as follows: Lithuanian Prince Radziwiłł made a pilgrimage to the Land of Israel, returning via Italy.

Having run out of funds, he turned to the local rabbi, who loaned him a large sum of money.

Before leaving Padua, he asked the rabbi whether he had any relatives living in Poland, and the rabbi told him about his son. When Radziwiłł reached Brest-Litovsk, he sent for Sha’ul and bestowed his favor upon him.

This story too is apocryphal: while Karol Mikolaj Radziwiłł did indeed make a pilgrimage to the Holy Land in the late sixteenth century and returned via Italy, there is no evidence that he had contacts with Jews along the way.

Ah, those Radziwills...

That’s another long story.

UPDATE 2:

Just to keep this information in the same place, going forward, as a lot of pieces of the puzzle are starting to fall into place.

THIS geni profile is for Margola Frankel / Halperin nee Shor. She is the sister of Ephraim Zalman Shor (G-Gdad of Elisha Shor, the Sabbatean-Frankist) and Avraham Chaim Shor, the ancestor of Rivka Shor, mother of the Alter Rebbe.

As you can see, she is married to R’ Eliezer Lippman Heilprin, who happens to be the brother of none other ‘R’ Joel Heilprin, the Baal Shem of Zamosc’.

====

This is the same guy we talked about above, who was commanding demons, making amulets, and organising groups of mystical ‘true believers’ all over Podolia.

This all pre-dated the Chassidic Baal Shem Tov by quite some time, although they did overlap a little, and they were groups of secret Sabbatian mystics.

The Rebbe Rayatz writes in his memoirs that the father of Yoel Baal Shem is one ‘Yisrael Yosef’. From geni, which probably in this instance is more accurate (that’s really saying something…) we see his father is actually R’ Isaac Halperin, the ABD of Tykocin / Tiktin.

That family has also been on my list for a very long time, as being at the heart of a lot of genealogical confusion, Now, I’m starting to understand a bit more why that is.

====

Now, I just took a look at Margola’s profile in detail, and here’s what came up:

====

All the dates on geni are always deliberately corrupted for these families, but this suggests that Margola Shor is the mother of ‘Rabbi Jacob Loeb Benjamin Frankel’.

That could either be Jacob Frank himself, or his grandfather, who he was named for.

Because the dates are so skewed, it’s going to take a while to shake all this info out, but yet again, we see how these new details further corroborate what’s set out above.

====

One of my readers wanted to know why I’m stirring this up.

The best answer I can give is because I think that’s what God wants.

Our Jewish world is broken, even on the ‘frum’ side of the equation. We need to explore how that happened, and how to fix it. And increasingly, that answer is coming into view:

Our religion and our community got hijacked by the dark side.

It’s time to wrest it back for God.
